Trouble with connecting-wordpress-plugins-with-3rd-party-apis/parsing-json-code-challenge-part-2

Having a bit of trouble figuring out what I'm not doing correctly in this exercise. Would appreciate some input.

<ul>
  <?php for( $i = 0; $i < count($my_plugin_profile->courses); $i++ ): ?>
  <li><?php echo $my_plugin_profile{'courses'}->['name'}[$i]; ?></li>

  <?php endfor; ?>
</ul>

Any insight?

plugin.php
<?php

/*
  {
    "name": "Username",
    "profile_name": "profile_username",
    "profile_url": "http://myapi.net/profile_username"
    "courses": [
      { "name": "WordPress Plugin Development" },
      { "name": "WordPress Theme Development" },
      { "name": "Introduction to PHP" }
    ]
  }
*/

?>

<ul>
  <?php for( $i = 0; $i < count($my_plugin_profile->courses); $i++ ): ?>



  <?php endfor; ?>
</ul>

After reading over other discussion, figured it out.

<ul>
  <?php for( $i = 0; $i < count($my_plugin_profile->courses); $i++ ): ?>
  <?php echo '<li>'.$my_plugin_profile ->{'courses'}[$i]->{'name'}.'</li>'; ?>

  <?php endfor; ?>
</ul>

works.

<li><?php echo $my_plugin_profile->{'courses'}[$i]->{'name'}; ?></li>

should work, but wasn't accepted.
